Alex Kirschenbaum

Editor-In-Chief

Alex blogs, directs and podcasts for Filmcore. He definitely doesn’t eat babies, if that’s what you were wondering. He is also your trusty supplier of the Quotecore of the Weekcore. He also writes TV criticism for The Tracking Board, plus basketball analysis for Pippen Ain’t Easy (go Bulls) and Grizzly Bear Blues (go Grizz). He doesn’t sleep much.
